Jacqueline Kelty Married couple on 20 Aug 2022
Wes was a superhero on our wedding day. It’s taken me almost a year to write a review because of how crazy our lives got. Right before our wedding we had a tragic accident in our family that resulted in the death of my cousin the day after our wedding. The day of the wedding was filled with so many emotions and that day Wes was more than a photographer. I’m not even sure that he knew of the accident but he went above and beyond to make our dreams come true. He was right there to bring a smile to my face, to be there to lend a hand in any way he could, and provide us with the most beautiful pictures to last a lifetime. I’m not sure Wes knows how important he was for so many reasons on our wedding day. If you are looking for an INCREDIBLE photographer and an even more INCREDIBLE person you need to go with Wes. His skills and his eye for photography are unmatched and he is such a joy to be around! If you are looking for a sign about what photographer to choose this is your sign CHOOSE WES!!!

Wes was 100%the best part of my wedding, when everything felt chaotic or outta control his calm, levelheaded-ness made me feel at ease.  Everything he needed to get one was done so smoothly and flawlessly. He was so professional and friendly that all of my guests felt that he was family and didn't even realize that he was taking pictures. He was fun and professional, and there isn't one bad thing I could think to say about him.  Pictures turned out beautiful and the photobooth was easy and fun!

They deserve more than 5 stars!! Wes and Chelsea were an absolute vital part of my wedding. I can not say enough good things about them. From the moment I met Wes at a bridal expo I knew I wanted to hire him. His genuine personality mixed with his professionalism makes him such an amazing person to work with. He is the ultimate hype man while also being the calm in the storm around you the day of your wedding. I literally cried when it was time for them to pack up at the end of the night because I didn’t want them to leave! Everyone at the wedding was telling me how awesome my photographers were as well. I never had to look around to find him or Chelsea, they were always there getting those shots. He knows how to capture your best angles and make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Wes and Chelsea are both so humble and get the job done! You will not regret working with them!!

Westley was my wedding photographer in March of 2022. He was prepared, organized and timely. He definitely knows all the tricks of the trade to work his magic on your wedding day. I highly recommend using him for your photography. He set up an amazing photo booth At my wedding and it was a big hit. Worth every penny!
Neil Eldridge Married couple on 21 Jan 2023
Wes did the photography for my wedding. He is an amazing photographer and just as amazing of a human being. We were absolutely in love with our wedding photos. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a photographer to meet with Wes.
Melissa Victor Married couple on 04 Feb 2023
I cannot say enough amazing things about wes and Chelsea! They were amazing the day of and our pictures are something that we will treasure forever. Our two small kiddos (3 years and 7 months) were a big part of our day and they had amazing patience with them trying to get pictures. From engagement pics to our wedding day, everything was great!  The photo booth was loved by everyone.
Alexis Howard Married couple on 13 May 2023
If I could give Wes and Chelsea 6/5 stars, I would. I seriously cannot recommend Westley Leon Studios enough. Our photos and highlight film turned out AMAZING, because Wes is absolutely incredible at what he does. He's more than just a photographer though; he feels like an ally and a friend, and  a part of the wedding party. He managed to bring the crowd together and get everyone pumped,  be in all places at all times without being intrusive, and brought an incredible energy to the entire event. He has an intuition for capturing important details and moments, and was such an amazing photographer that we had numerous guests tell us--unprompted--how incredible he was. Seriously cannot recommend enough!!! There simply aren't enough words to express all of the ways that Wes helped us--beyond just capturing photography-- on the day of the wedding and in all of the planning leading up to it. 150% recommend him-- you will never, ever regret it. We got a full wedding photography package from him, as well as a photo booth and highlight film. Absolutely everything far, far exceeded our already-high expectations. We will have these images for the rest of our lives, and could not be happier with them.
Tameica Bynum Married couple on 27 May 2023
Westley Leon Studios really helped bring our day together and match the vibe of the day so well. Our families and friends couldn't stop telling us how amazing they were. Having them as our vendors through all this planning made it feel like we had wedding coordinators. Any questions or freak out moments (   the bride) had they  were there to reassure us that the day would be amazing and worked out the kinks with us.
We started our first wedding planning in 2020 and canceled the event 4 months before the date.  We had a different photographer. We truly thank God that we canceled the event then because if not, we wouldn't have started planning a second one that led us to Westley Leon Studios.
Wes is easy to work with, fun, and down to earth. My husband and I have anxiety and social awkwardness, but Wes made us feel so comfortable and free to be ourselves. His wife, Chelsea, and his assistant were always in sync and there to help. I didn't worry at all about if an iconic moment was missed because they were on it. You could literally see our love, the fun people were having coming off the images/mini vidoes they captured. We wouldn't change a thing. Westley Leon Studios was perfect.
Michelle Mason Married couple on 15 Jul 2023
Can’t say enough good things about Wes and Chelsea! They are hands down, the absolute best! Wes did my engagement photos and him and Chelsea both shot my wedding. We love all of our pictures so much! It also helps that they are so fun, sweet, funny, and so easy to work with! I would without a doubt recommend them!
Kaitlyn Meachum Married couple on 19 Aug 2023
We are SO grateful we chose Wes and Chelsea to be our wedding photographers. They both have such great personalities and fit right in with our family and friends. My husband and I are both kind of awkward when it comes to being around new people, but we felt so comfortable with Wes and Chelsea. Since the day we hired them, they have been so helpful. We had our first meeting over zoom to go over what we wanted and Wes sent us over the pricing. Not once did we ever feel pressured into chosing Wes. But just based off of our meeting with Wes and his portfolio, we knew we WANTED this guy! Wes sent us over so much helpful information to guide us through the wedding process and when closer to the wedding he sent us a survey to make sure he understood our expectations and to be aware of any special moments we wanted to make sure were captured. By the time dinner was over at our wedding, we ALREADY had sneak peeks of our pictures. Wes and Chelsea also made us a polaroid photo book, which we absolutely loved! If you are looking through these reviews trying to decide if you want to hire Wes and Chelsea, get them BEFORE another lucky couple takes them! They are absolutely AMAZING!

P.S. GET THE PHOTOBOOTH! It was a hit at our wedding! Our guests were taking pictures all day and night long.
